She hand paints and sells these wonderful baby hangers based on designs from the 1930's. I think they are just so precious! You may click on the pictures to get a better look at her beautiful work. Now I am going to let Amber tell you in her own words a little bit about herself her hobby.
I did not have many toys as a child and for that reason I am extremely sentimental and a big collector. I have always been attracted to children’s things, especially from the 1920’s and 30’s. I take the imagery influence from things just like my childhood hanky.
When my son was little, I really wanted to open a baby boutique with a blend of new, vintage and artist made items. I was a single mother, so it never happened.
I soon came to realize though, that the decal designs were very limited. I looked around at other textiles, books and toys I had also acquired and thought how fun it would be to move some of that imagery to new hangers made in the old style.
I made a pattern based on one in my collection, and originally had my grandfather cut them out of thin wood. (I am not super comfortable around a saw - I like and need my fingers!) My grandfather passed away several years ago, so I work with another experienced woodworker to cut them.
I do all the sanding, patching, priming, base and decorative paint, sealing and add the hanger hook and a bow...and Voila!
I have even sold these for miniature dog clothing.
She also does hand embroidery onto baby Onesies. What a perfect baby shower gift that would be.
In addition, you will find many charming vintage items.
